I have done what it seems it's a source/binary install of latest mysql on a red hat linux 8 system.
I am trying to figure out how to uninstall completely off the system. I am used to thr RPM way to uninstall, however, this is is slightly different.
Certainly appreciate any responses!
Thanks in advance!
"I am trying to figure out how to uninstall completely off the system."
What do you mean that? To uninstall the MySQL database or whole OS?
If MySQL it's pretty simple:
Check the name of mysql packegaes by: rpm -qa | grep -i mysql
then unistall the packages with? rpm -e name of all packeges
mysql will be uninstalled but data directory will be not deleted. You need to do it manualy.
If you want uninstall the whole OS then simply destroy all partitions with PQmagic (or whatever) or use the low level format for all harddisk (i don't recommend this option)
